Laing O’Rourke / Everton FC
To increase storage and warehousing capabilities for Everton Football Stadium, contributing to continuation and progress of Laing O’Rourke site build. To work alongside a supplier that manufactures its own materials.
Positioned on Liverpool’s world-famous waterfront, the new 52,888-seater football stadium for Everton FC will be the catalyst for the regeneration of North Liverpool and its vibrant community. Laing O’Rourke as the main contractor for the £555 million stadium, has set its sights on an ambitious delivery programme that would enable the first match to be played there during the 2024/25 season.
To enable the continuation and progression of the stadium build, Laing O’Rourke contacted Spaciotempo with the need for a 10m x 30m x 4m, 300m2 temporary building to increase it’s warehousing and storage capabilities. Almost acting as a temporary construction building too, our facilities once again demonstrate their true versatility.
With our robust storage facility sitting proudly by the River Mersey, certain requirements needed to be addressed to maximise its efficiency. In the thorough scoping and planning phases of the project, a process we follow each and every time, it was clear that there was a need to make sure that our temporary warehouse was watertight to reduce risk of flooding.
To bolster the defences, we installed our innovative Z shape plates. These were fitted to the cladding panels at base height, fixed 30mm into the ground surface to form the protective Z shape and sealed with Tec 7 Sealant. It was sealed around the entire perimeter of the building, except for access points, and protects covered areas where water and even unwanted vermin might otherwise penetrate.
Another must for Laing O’Rourke, was to have plenty of racking to store a maximum of 84 pallets which would be essential for their operational success. Paired with a PVC coated polyester flame-retardant fabric on the exterior, our Neivelu temporary storage structure now operates at full potential ensuring maximum safety and coverage.
Located in the Northwest of England, the building can be exposed to a cold snap which would, in certain circumstances, hold up play. To ensure the construction workers are protected against the elements, sufficient thermo roofing was put in place. This additional feature is essential to keeping the project running smoothly through the cold and wet winter months. Thermo roofing, with its temperature-regulating properties, will play an important role in enhancing energy efficiency and maintaining optimal climate control within the building.
With a completion deadline set in place for the Toffee’s 2024/2025 premier league season, our temporary building has provided a fast, reliable, and durable solution which will aid the success and speed of the project.
